PerkinElmer, Tibco Software Ink Licensing Agreement

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – PerkinElmer and Tibco Software have signed an agreement providing PerkinElmer with exclusive worldwide rights to Tibco's Spotfire software platform in certain scientific research and development markets.

The agreement stipulates that PE will take responsibility for growing and servicing Tibco's Spotfire business in basic and preclinical development applications in life sciences as well as R&D, quality assurance, and quality control applications in chemical, petrochemical, environmental, food and beverage, consumer products, and academic markets.

In a statement, Mike Stapleton, general manager of informatics at PerkinElmer, said that the Spotfire platform complements PE's informatics offering "by adding search and data visualization, which are among the most pressing business requirements of life sciences, diagnostics, and environmental laboratories, worldwide."

Christian Marcazzo, co-head of global life sciences for Spotfire, said that the relationship between the companies will "enable a broader community to benefit from the Tibco Spotfire platform and will expand the range and depth of applications serving the rapidly evolving needs of scientific research."
